  Project Goals :   • We sought out to create a  multiplayer  VR experience using tangible materials as interface, without traditional controllers.   • We wanted to cultivate a sense of embodiment within a mixed reality experience, and promote connection between the players through touch.   • We wanted to create an experience that encouraged collaboration and communication between the two players, through primarily non-verbal means.
